CVS commit: src/sys/dev/ic

Module Name:    src
Committed By:   tsutsui
Date:           Fri May 10 14:05:57 UTC 2013

Modified Files:
        src/sys/dev/ic: rtl8169.c

Log Message:
Make re(4) driver always use IDR register values for its MAC address.

Some sandpoint NAS firmwares set MAC address per their
firmware settings and don't use re(4)'s EEPROM values.
Per rtl8169 manuals re(4) chip reads EEPROM automatically after
hardware reset and Linux driver also uses IDR registers,
so this change should not affect existing other boards
which actually have vaild EEPROM.

Per discussion in old tech-kern@ thread:
Note rtl81x9.c is still shared among rtk(4) only for a multicast function
(to avoid boring refactoring work).
